A really long, hot a tiring day. Overall worth it to see and touch the pyramids of Giza. Very tiring battling off the multiple requests from local people for money - even the police and security people. Everywhere is very dirty with huge amounts of rubbish everywhere you look - no street cleaners here! The road from Alexandria to Giza, just outside Cairo is long (2.5 hours) and straight but the tarmac is not flattened and the journey is very bumpy. If you have young children with you be advised to take travel sick bags. We were provided with a snack bag - crisps (chips), apple, banana, chocolate bar. Water and soda was available in the front fridge (we ran out so make sure you get yours)and there was a toilet on board. The guides are very "on message" from their government - that said, they are all very highly trained in history of Egypt. The best prices for souvenirs were in the shops just outside the port! Air con on the bus was very good, outside temperatures reach highest about 2pm - take a hat and wear sunscreen - stand in the shade where ever possible, that said, most is in the desert!
